Winds have the Reynolds Creek Fire burning more intensely, but it is still contained . . .
Heavy plumes of smoke towered above the east side of Glacier National Park on Friday afternoon as a patch of fuel burned within the Reynolds Creek Fire.
“It’s mostly burning in the interior, up in the Rose Creek area,” said Nan Stinson, a fire information officer. A spot in the northeastern corner fueled the increased burn. Stinson said that it was a pocket of vegetation up against some rocks.
Smoke rose into the sky and a portion of the plume could be seen from the Flathead Valley.
